Wrongfully Accused

Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, the place where the king's prisoners were bound, and he was there in custody. But Yahweh was with Joseph, and showed kindness to him, and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison. Gen. 39:20 WEB

Joseph was his father's favorite son and though he had done nothing wrong, he was sold into slavery by his older brothers, who were jealous. As if being a slave was not bad enough, when he refused to sleep with his master's wife, she falsely accused him of rape and had him thrown into prison.

Joseph stayed positive during all of this and soon he was put in charge of the rest of the prisoners. In time, he was released out of prison and became the second-in-command of Egypt, and whatever he did, God made it succeed. Was Joseph in God's perfect will while in prison? Strangely enough yes, and in the end, it could not have worked out any better.

No matter where you are today, or how dark it looks, or how you got there, if you submit yourself to God and keep a positive attitude, it will work out for the best. The wrongs in your life will be made right. Like Joseph, when you have the chance to finally get even, don't. Forgive them, let them go and enjoy the new wonderful life God has given you instead. God can turn the bad into the good and sometimes it can happen overnight.

Prayer: Father, I thank You for the life that You have given me. Breathe into my life and give me encouragement today. Lead me and help me make the right decisions. May Your will be done in my life, and not mine. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
